Abstract

Structural, dynamical and electronic properties of the adducts formed by adsorbing methanol onto size-selected gold clusters are investigated using infrared multiple-photon dissociation spectroscopy of trapped Aun+CH3OH, n≤15, in conjunction with Car-Parrinello calculations. The C-O stretching vibration of the attached sensor molecule changes discontinuously as a function of cluster size, which is traced back to a change in dimensionality of the cluster structure.
